This story is heartwarming—I laughed and I cried. I even took notes! I haven’t done that in forever. There were so many nuggets of wisdom in this book like “trading hostages” and “Just-in-Time Inventory.”
Celia is up against a lot right up until the end, but isn’t real life like that at times? I love books with main characters who are writers. Celia is an advice columnist who gives the best advice but doesn’t apply it to herself. Most of the time Celia doesn’t get what she wants but is able to roll with the punches and there are quite a few jabs, so to speak. A sense of community is at the heart of this novel and is so beautifully written. Most of the book takes place in Charleston. It’s the perfect setting for a book about family, friendship and belonging. There were even a few twists I didn’t see coming. If you’re looking for a book with all the feels—I highly recommend reading this. You won’t be disappointed.
This is a refreshing and uplifing nnovel about friendhsip, kindness and family, the one you're born to and the one you create. It's also about recognizing and capitalizing on second chances. While it may seem like "women's fiction" -- a category the author derides--- this novel is equally relevant for men, especially those who like to venture beyond violence and mayhem that is typically directed at them. Some, myself included, may find themselves even tearing up from time to time.
The Restoration of Celia Fairchild cold have turned sappy, but just as it veers slightly in that direction, Bostwick reels it in. Appealing and fully realized characters -- even dogs -- add to the mix. This warm, wise and funny novel is a winner!
